We felt un-welcome at this place. Even though the food was good, poor service made me give 3 stars to this review. Their portions are smaller compared to other Indian restaurants but the prices are adjusted accordingly so no complaints there.

Manan312, while I'm happy that our cooking hit the spot for you, I'm surprised to hear our service fell short of the mark. We love welcoming guests, be they our neighbors or visitors from out of town, and I want to apologize if we made you feel unwelcome. Nothing could be further from the truth. Typically our servers earn raves... More

We were in Boston for two nights and ate at India Quality for one of our dinners. The restaurant was smelled wonderful and the service was great. We're from Tucson, Arizona, so I guess our spice levels are different than east coast expectations, so we would have like a bit more heat, but other than that, the food was delicious.... More

This is the best Indian Resturant I've been to. It is a small place at Kenmoe Square but the staff and every thing is good. The interiors are amazing. I had paneer, daal and naan and was the best indian I've had since a long time. Also don't miss on the lassi.

We have been going to India Quality for over 15 years, and are thrilled at the quality every time (and I have eaten Indian food all over the US, Europe and in India). We just have been back twice in the last 4 weeks, and continue to marvel at the quality of the food. It is fresh, tasty, delicate in... More

India Quality had the merit of having tables available on a night when the Red Sox were playing at Fenway Park nearby. We were happy to find it. The food was very good indeed. We chose a vegetarian dinner for two. There was far more food than we could eat. It included papadum, soup (coconut or lentil), naan, dal, an... More

We had lunch here and it was amazingly good food. The entrees were all made well. But watch out they give you a lot of rice with it. The Naan was soft and hot which made us very happy customers.

We have had Indian food around the world but our hearts belong to India Quality! This place is one of the reasons we miss living in Boston so much and we crave it regularly. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious.

We had a good meal at India Quality. The service was pretty good. The restaurant was clean. They had a couple of Indian beers that I had never tried before, like 1000 Monks. The breads were good. The aloo paratha was a bit different from what I am accustomed to, but still pretty good. The mixed appetizers are good and... More

First-rate India fare in a 30-year-old establishment that grinds its own spices and compounds its own sauces. Note that you can select how hot you want your dishes done, but that "medium" can come down a little on the hot side, which was no problem to me. Prices are high average, portions fairly generous. Good beer and wine, plus hard... More
